Amie discovered that her partner Chris, 42, had passed away next to her from a ruptured stomach ulcer while she was still asleep due to her own battle with liver and bowel cancer.
A couple sadly passed away within weeks of one another, leaving two young children without parents. Within a month, Chris Mills and Amie Walton both passed away, leaving behind their children, Harry, 8, and Mia, 6. On July 18, Amie discovered that her partner Chris, 42, had passed away next to her from a ruptured stomach ulcer while she was still asleep due to her own battle with liver and bowel cancer. Amie lost her fight with cancer exactly four weeks later, on August 18, when she was just 30 years old, according to BirminghamLive.
The couple's funerals, which were conducted weeks apart, were for Chris on August 8 and Amie on September 12. They were from Kingstanding, which is north of Birmingham. Amie's mother Tracey is now taking care of Harry and Mia, and she promised that their family will do their "best to bring up their children the best we can." She said that when Chris went away abruptly and unexpectedly, their families were focused on helping Amie get through her sickness. After her partner's passing, Tracey praised Amie as "so brave," but she passed just a few weeks later. As reported by WalesOnline, following the couple's passing, the neighborhood shopkeeper Bal Singh established a fundraising campaign and planned a raffle for their devoted patrons' children in his store on Beacon Road.
In response to the thoughtful gesture, Tracey said, "I would like to say a huge thank you to all involved who are helping raise money for my grandchildren. We have all had a very hard and tough time as of late. Once Chris's funeral was over Amie went to her dad's for a break in Devon where she sadly passed herself a few days later. We will continue to live on with them both in our hearts and do our best to bring up their children the best we can. Again, thank you to Bal and everyone one for their continued support, much love." Mr Singh said, "We are coming together as a collective community to do the best we can for Harry and Mia and I would like to express my heartfelt thanks and gratitude to each and every one for their support in playing an important part in the wellbeing of not only Harry and Mia but for their families too."
BirminghamLive has closely followed Amie's sickness tale. Her ability to earn £20,000 within 24 hours thanks to readers allowed her to have SIRT radiation discreetly, which might save her life. Because of its success, her friends assisted her in raising more cash for a second round. Amie learned that her cancer had spread and that there were 50 tumors in each lung in May. Her army of donors then started a new fundraising campaign to finance the £2,000 monthly cost of her protracted palliative treatment. The fundraiser has so far gathered nearly £3,000 for the children.
